Penn Foster Grading System

While our online school differs from traditional settings, you'll find that our grading scale is designed with a similar goal in mind: to help you prepare for the next phase of your life. Penn Foster uses a number-letter system of grading, with number grades being assigned to examinations and letter grades to completed courses.
